Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


France, Germany, Russian Federation, Switzerland | 2021 | Kirill Serebrennikov

PETROV’S FLU film still

Leading Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov (The Student, Leto, the upcoming Tchaikovsky’s Wife) has run afoul of Putin’s regime by criticizing both the annexation of Crimea and the invasion of Ukraine. But he’s still making movies. This acclaimed new work is a wildly imaginative, visually voluptuous, phantasmagoric journey through post-Soviet Russia—the fever dream of a married mechanic and comic book artist saddled with influenza. Unfortunately, there’s no vaccine for spiritual emptiness and societal malaise. “Critic’s Pick…Paints a bleak, wistful, tragically funny portrait of a man, a people, a world.” –NY Times. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 145 min.

Special admission $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes.

Masks are currently optional for moviegoers, but still encouraged. Learn more under the “Face Coverings” section at
